Adult Ministries

Our desire at Faith is to help adults grow in their faith in the context of significant relationships. To that end we offer a variety of ways to study the Bible and get connected with others through the ministries below.

Adult Bible Studies

Sunday Bible Studies

  • Living Right Side Up in an Upside Down World — A study of I Thessalonians. Our purpose in this study is to be assured and re-assured that even in this crazy world we live in, we as individuals and as a church can do more than just survive. We can Thrive! But how does that happen? It comes down to those three basic elements of the Christian life -- Faith, Hope, and Love. Join us for an interactive study and discussion of this extremely relative book of 1Thessalonians. Led by Lowell Nelson in the Fellowship Hall.

  • Women's Study of Mark — For women of all ages, designed as a group in which women can come as often or as little as they are able. A study of Jesus through the eyes of John Mark, the writer of the book of Mark. Join us as we follow the Master and deepen our understanding of His love and salvation and what it means to be a true disciple of Jesus. Led by Joyce Folson in Room 209A (off the Fellowship Hall).

  • Growing as a Disciple of Christ — This discussion-based class will read and study the Sermon on the Mount, and wrestle with how we live out this quintessential teaching of Jesus in our contemporary world. Led by Paul Todhunter in Room 104A-B. Adults of all ages are welcome.

  • Chinese Bible Study — Our Chinese friends all are welcome to attend this Sunday morning study with an emphasis on marriage. Led by Pastor Scott in Room 223, the Lounge.

Wednesday Bible Studies

  • Daytime Study - We meet year around each Wednesday morning at 10:30 am for a time of inductive Bible study, fellowship and encouragement with Ray Laventure. Join us in the upstairs Lounge, Room 223, across from the Sanctuary. Bring your Bible and a heart to discuss and learn from one another as we study the book of John.

Glorifying God with the gifts He's given

Midweek Studies (September 12-May 1)

Tuesday Morning - Women of all ages are invited to a collective study and prayer at 9:00 am on Tuesday mornings in the Fellowship Hall. We begin with refreshments and prayer and then move into our studies. Two studies are offered this fall. The first study, True Woman, authored by Nancy Leigh DeMoss Wolgemuth, is led by Leeza Vein. Dig into the heart of true womanhood and discover the fulfillment of being exactly who He created you to be. The second study, "Trusting God," was written by Jerry Bridges. Come and explore the scope of God's power over nations and even the details of your life. You will find yourself trusting Him completely even when life hurts. Led by Linda Williamson. The last study before Christmas will be Tuesday, December 11.

Wednesday Evening - This semester, Laurie Charette is leading women through 1, 2, and 3 John. Ladies, come and join us as we learn weekly from God's Word and how to apply it to our lives. We meet in Room 223 from 6:00-7:30 pm.

Wednesday Evening - Have you ever wondered if God can do something in the life of another over a simple meal or coffee “date?” We are walking through the simple idea of hospitality, sharing your life with another, to see how God can work through us in each other’s lives and the lives of the lost. Join us as we seek to live out what it means to love our neighbor as ourselves. We look forward to seeing what God will do as we take steps of faith in this area. We meet from 6:00-7:30 pm. Contact Tammy Dunford for study location or to order a book.

Sunday Morning Bible Study (September 9-May 19)

This year we are studying Jesus through the eyes of John Mark, the writer of the book of Mark. Mark presents Jesus to his audience as the bearer of glad tiding and salvation. All women are welcome to join us as we follow the Master and deepen our understanding of His love and salvation and what it means to be a true disciple of Jesus. Led by Joyce Folson in Room 209A (off the Fellowship Hall) from 9:50-10:35 am. 

Serving Groups

We consider it a privilege, when the need arises, to be able to provide a meal for an individual or family in our church family. Upon request, meals are brought to the home of those in need following surgery or the birth of a baby. Serving groups may also be called to bring food to church for a special event or a funeral lunch. All are encouraged to serve as the hands and feet of Christ in this way.

Life Groups


Doing life; Together.

Life Groups are our small groups of six to twelve people. These groups meet periodically in host homes or other locations and are designed to help believers grow spiritually through healthy Christian relationships. Our goal is to have a variety of groups (including life-stage groups, gender groups and mixed groups) that spend time each week reflecting on the Word of God, growing in relationships, and doing life together.
